From Chicago Breaking News:
A former Chicago woman and her son have been charged after Kenosha police found the woman’s 38-year-old daughter–who has the intellectual capacity of a child–at the family home disfigured from neglect, covered in her own excrement and chained to a weight bench.
Sally M. Adams, 56, and her son, Ernest Claiborne, 34, were arrested in their home in the 1300 block of 69th Street in Kenosha on Saturday. Police went there after the father of Adams’ grandson complained to authorities that Adams had barred him from seeing his 2-year-old son since September and that Adams’ own daughter might be neglected and chained to furniture in a filthy house, according to criminal complaints filed Monday.
Adams and Claiborne both face charges of felony false imprisonment, abuse of a person at risk and reckless endangerment in connection to their alleged treatment of the woman who is Adams’ daughter and Claiborne’s sister. Claiborne also faces a misdemeanor child neglect charge related to his treatment of the 2-year-old.
According to criminal complaints, the defendants both told police that the allegedly abused woman has the mental capacity of a 5-year-old.
